Are you struggling with substance use and/or mental illness?

On Jan. 29, 2019, RNAO along with the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO), the Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA) and the Registered Practical Nurses Association of Ontario (RPNAO) launched the Nurses’ Health Program to help support nurses experiencing mental health and/or substance use disorders. The program is a voluntary, bilingual and confidential program that offers nurses access to resources, a dedicated case manager, comprehensive assessment, an individualized support and treatment plan, and monitoring. It is available to all nurse practitioners, registered nurses and registered practical nurses practising in Ontario. The program is modelled on similar ones used by other regulated health professions across the province. To learn more about the program, please see online.
